How much is enough?

One of the ways to get your exercise in an RV park is to walk through the park and see what new rigs pulled into the park in the past day.  It’s amazing the difference in rigs! One evening while were walking I noticed a large toy-hauling fifth wheel with a couple of slide- outs pulled by a White Frieghtliner diesel truck.   In the days since, I’ve notice a small car that I think fits into the back of the fifth wheel! We’re talking one big rig here!

A couple of days after noticing this big rig, we walked by, and this is what I  saw sitting next to it  …IMG_20150111_171930841It’s a little popup trailer called a “Chalet” that can be towed by almost any vehicle on the road.  I guess each person has to ask himself or herself, “How Much Is Enough?” as we journey through this life. It probably has to something to do with our current mission in life.

I thought of a couple verses that reflected on “How much is enough?” and our contentment in life …

Proverbs 30:8-9 – NIV
8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
9 Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.

Philippians 4:12-13 – NIV
12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
